Actually, Kay, Hamas has declared a cease-fire on Israel, and has stood by it - they have not used militant tactics in over a year. You might want to check out the Israeli newspaper Ha'aretz - they have a very interesting bi-partisan, multi-belief reporting style that will explain which groups are doing what, where, and why sealing off an entire city of people is killing off hundreds of children because of lack of water supply and food shortages. I like Meir's quote, but unfortunately, it's targeting an entire racial group (by the by, many Israeli's and citizens throughout the Middle East are Arab Jews - almost half the Palestinians are Christian) and calling them unpeaceful. Maybe we should stop pointing at the .0001% of people causing destruction (because if we don't, then all Israeli's are responsible for the horrors in Palestine, when about 60% support complete withdrawal and a right of return) and letting them represent an entire group of humans - that sounds like a smarter idea to me.

It is disgusting the loss of human life. But let's get it straight - Hamas is a terrorist organization and they sent bombs into Israel - what do they expect in return. Hamas does not value or respect Human life and wants to see the state of Israel wiped out at the cost of any human life - event their own. In the words of Golda Meir - "We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us."

I agree minamin...they always say militants were killed, but if they aren't alive they can't defend themselves and say it wasn't true. That bloody child sure doesn't look like a militant to me. I certainly need to learn more about the situation, and why they decided to strike, but no matter what the escalation of violence is very scary.

"most of whom were militants..." You know, I expect the civilian lives lost on BOTH sides to be honored and mourned equally. Yet, in the media, it's always specific when it comes to Israeli citizens, and ambiguous to stress the militants taken in Palestine. It's disgusting - a human life is a human life, no matter where they call their borders home. Shame on you citizensugar, for perpetuating the same problem here.
